'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Challenge Squares arrive!

Good morning and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

I am very happy to be showing you some squares which have arrived from Beang (RAV) here in the UK. As you know we sometimes have themes for our blankets and I am collecting at the moment squares for our Nursery Rhyme blanket and an Owl blanket. Beang has very kindly made two squares and I would love you to have a look at them.

'Nursery Rhyme' Challenge. Thank you!

'Owl Challenge' Thank you Beang very much!

Great ideas Beang.
Beang has also  made some Butterlies for our Butterly Club too. If you would like to make a Butterly and send to 'SIBOL' here's the link for RAVELRY 'our Butterfly Club' and here's the link for the brilliant Butterly video tutorial in Australia on Nettie's Blog.

We use Butterlies to decorate our blankets along with ribbons and they really do finish them off beautifully. They are talking points in the homes too! It's nice to have lots in my Stash so I can pick the appropriate colour out when finishing the blankets off. So if you have odd bits of yarn lying about please feel free to send me some.

I am continuing to make blankets up at home and I would like to thank everyone who has taken part in 'take a bag' over on RAVELRY. Ladies have offered to make a bag up for me, this way we can assemble more for the homes. All help is very much appreciated.

Thank you Beang, and thanks everyone for popping in to see what's new today!
